Despite first clashing in Randy Stradley and Chris Warner's comic book in 1989, it wouldn't be until a year later and the release of Predator 2 with its cheeky use of an Alien skull in the trophy case that intrest in combining the two horror icons really gained momentum despite being stuck in development hell for a further 10 years until Anderson pitched his own script but would he be the right director to finally bring this clash between the two iconic monsters to the screen.
